. i was reading a review of the 2008 town hall debate barack obama had with senator john mccain at the time. they said he was dispassionate, he ambled when he chose his words. sound familiar? so i will say this, i agree with lz, the town hall format lowers the ball. i don't think people like head to head as much. it's more about connecting with people. >> that was tom brokaw's debate in 2008. he talked about doing a town hall debate this morning on "meet the press" and he said it was very tough. he said something like, i'm paraphrasing, my condolences to candy, because it's a tough debate to do. let's talk about joe biden for a minute and go back to last week's debate. we knew "saturday night live" would have some fun. take a look. >> first of all, i want to thank center college for hosting us this evening. >> oh, boy, here we go. >> four years ago, president obama made a promise. [ laughter ] >> that he would bring down unemployment below 6%. >> oh, this guy. i mean. >> that's funny. and i have to say, do you think this will be old news by tuesday, lz? >> well, it's old new

from the failed policy of president obama and from the failed policy of senator tester. >> congressman rehberg didn't answer the question why we should vote for him. the fact of the matter is, we had a broken healthcare system and making sure people with people with preexisting condition have coverage. we have to hold insurance companies accountable. as far as the stimulus package goes, the shiloh road congressman provides avenue to get to one of your developments. the fact is that the work that was done, is critically important we're going to move forward. >> thank you very much. now tom to your question for representative rehberg. >> yes representative rehberg. you have criticized american recovery and reinvestment act, our also cut the ribbon on a road project that used stimulus. in february 2009, you credited yourself for securing $42.5 million for montana project and that year consolidated appropriation bill, that's according to your website. the very next day, you cried the $410 billion for wasteful spending. you have mostly voted the party line and accused your opponent of votin
bill guess who one of them was, senator barack obama voted against it. now he later voted against it for it so i guess he was against it before he was for it. that's the problem with things like that, because you have a voting record. let's look at the newest attack ad against mitt romney. >> my name is richard hane and i pick up mitt romney's trash, residents do come out and shake our hands and sometimes give us hugs and you know, the service we provide. i'm 55, 65 years old my body will care about that, and romney doesn't care about that. >> of all the ridiculous political ads i've seen in my life i think this maybe ranks at the top. mitt romney doesn't deserve to be president because he doesn't give his trashman a hug, because more than anything else, that's what i want in a president, one who hugs the trashman. first of all, let me say, people who pick up trash do a good and important job and they work very, very hard, a job most of us won't want to do. but it doesn't mean that it's typical that we go out and hug them. i mean, seriously, have you ever gone out and hugged your
feed a state senator who was under scandal, who saw barack obama win the u.s. senate race because his main opponent took his wife to strip clubs who won the presidency after eight years of george w. bush. i don't think he's had his back against the wall. i love it. it's fascinating to see the character of this man and see how he responds. >> well, you know, you can't show up to the next debate if you're the president of the united states clearly accompanied by a level of disdain that was so apparent visually. what am i doing here with this guy? he had absolutely no respect for mitt romney. you know, you hear that over and over again internally, but he showed it visually. he showed it when he was on stage with governor romney the other night. he cannot show up like that again. >> it was also a strategy, though. he was playing four corners offense. he felt like he had a lead and took the air out of the ball. he can't afford to do that. there's still four weeks left. he'll be a totally different guy in the next debate. >> i don't think so. i think he arises to the occasion and it will be

or the opposite. >> it's not fair because barack obama-- this is a man who hasn't pressed the democrat senate to put forth a budget. >> we znt had a budget. >> so it's absurd to say that. do i believe that mitt romney needs to off specifics? i do. that's what will inspire confidence in voters. i think the more information they have with respect to education, with respect to the economy and respect to how, how you're going to implement the changes i think the better, but for barack obama who hasn't offered any specifics at all is a ridiculous claim. >> i don't think that's necessarily true, for americans making $250,000 or less and he had a fair and balanced proechd. >> he's not cutting taxes, he's raising via obamacare and a ton of taxes on the middle class. >> we neat fact checks and nonpartisan, says that mitt romney's numbers are not true and if they're making that-- >> cbo said what about obamacare, it's going to raise taxes on the middle class. you've got conflicting statements. >> 30 days left. can you keep the passion going? >> i can. >> and great to see you this morning. >> thank you.
for republican senators mccain, ayotte, and ron johnson who say either the obama administration is misleading congress and the american people, or it's blaming the entire failure on the intelligence community. ambassador rice claims the administration launched a comprehensive effort to determine what happened in bengazhi, but the administration failed to secure the scene of the terrorist attack for three weeks. a state department memo showed the security team in benghazi was denied a dc-3 aircraft they were asked for before the attack. there is nothing to prove a plane would have prevented the murders of those four miles hour. in washington, peter dosy, fox news. >>> hearing a sect for a man behind an antimuslim film. he was convictd in of bank fraud in 2010. a judge will decide whether he should be sent back to prison for violating his violations. a few were lying to his parole officers and. >>> palo gabrielle will spend 18 months behind bars for making photo copies of pope benedict xvi ben's private documents and leaking them to an italian journalist. the court reduced gabrielle's sentenced

-- i'm not sure how much the presidential race is impacting the senate race in virginia. we have romney narrowing that gap, significantly, with president obama. but kaine still seems to be ahead of allen in the state. is that interesting to you? >> yes, very. i think originally our view was that whoever won state in the presidential race was also going to get a senate seat out of it, because in this political climate, there are a lot of straight ticket voters. not a lot of people splitting their tickets. but it seems that kaine is in a position where he's going to probably outperform president obama in virginia. so there may be scenarios where romney wins in virginia in the presidential race, kaine may win barely in the senate race. >> thanks for joining us this morning. good to have you on the show. >> thanks for having me. >> it is 7:41 now. we'll be back with more news in a couple of moments. stay with us. ve my mpkin co ff pumpkin's perfect. it's dunkin' with the press of a button. new pumpkin k-cup packs, only at dunkin' restaurants. america runs on dunkin' coffee. i'm drinking dun
wedding back in the early '90s being attended by then future senator and president barak obama. that marriage ended in divorce years later. reached out to the campaigns yesterday and asked whether or not this was going to be an issue in terms of impartiality or beliefs in that. both campaigns waived off on it. in terms of the polling numbers, we've seen a lot on presidential candidates, but very little on vice presidential. we do have some to share. joe biden in the negative on the split by three percentage points. paul ryan, plus ten. that might have a lot to do that he's relatively new on the national scene and 16% you see there really can't rate him 'cause they don't know enough about him. paul ryan may do something about that tonight with a national television audience, which will have to compete, and i know this breaks brian's heart, with the yankees-orioles game on television. we know brian is a dedicated political watcher, so he will actually turn off the orioles- yankees game, all of the vice presidential debate. and then all of the breakdown after on fox. so he's goin
the dream the act. president obama, nancy pelosi, and harry reid have the perfect trifecta. they had the senate and the white house, two years to pass comprehensive immigration reform, and they did nothing. they did not have a single bipartisan meeting at the white house. i do not support president obama did what he likes to do, an executive order on the dream act. >> thank you. >> you are not running against nancy pelosi. this is precisely the language of gridlock that is evident as to why we have a do nothing congress. one of the things we have to do is to realize that the congresswoman has failed to lead. she talks a big game, but she has failed to deliver. her language, when she attacks and attacks is very partisan. >> the next question. >> in your last debate, you refused to disclose your personal fought on california's prop. 8, which bans same-sex marriage. now that it is being looked at by the federal court, it has become a federal constitutional issue that has national implications on the legality of same-sex marriages. don't you think residents deserve to know where you stan

night after night. i can't always say the same. >> last night mr. obama also attended a $25,000 per person fund-raising dinner. tomorrow the president will hit the campaign trail in ohio. >>> virginia's u.s. senate candidates will hold their second debate today. republican george allen and democrat tim kaine will square off in richmond. a recent nbc/wall street journal/marist poll shows kaine pulling ahead of allen 49-44%. david gregory moderated their first debate last month. >>> today controversial ads will be popping up in some metro stations and on some metro buses. the ads equate muslim radicals to savages, and they'll be displayed at the georgia avenue, petworth, "u" street, takoma, and glen mont stations. the american defense initiative created the ads, and metro didn't want to post them based on the violent response to the anti-islam video made in the u.s. a judge ruled on friday that metro was violating the afdi's first amendment rights. the ads have been posted in new york city subway stations since last month. >>> five minutes after the hour, and the nationals playoff run
the president's signature. the senate's consent and the house. the republican house has nothing to do with it. i believe that obama's second term and lame duck strategy will be able to create global gloverance and impose through treaty the gun controls and tax increases that he cannot get through a republican house. >> steve: check it out. here come the black helicopters bound to be a new york times best seller. thank you very much. congratulations . >> brian: three minutes before the top of the hour. want to buy a gun or ammo? get ready to shell out a violence tax? is that legal. >> steve: they are famous for smashing guitars, but did you know the who nearly called themselves -- i am not going to tell you, i am going to let pete townsend tell you here on "fox and friends". ♪ ♪ ♪ >> steve: the shot of the moment. media. of all of the photos they took of mitt romney they show this one. he was preparing to pose with the students in fairfield elementary . turns out that little girl was making that face because she was surprised he was sitting down directly in front of her. the new york times
? >> well, it gets into detail, and i have a whole chapter on this, and it has to do with six senators saying, gee, we can ask for more revenue, it included three more republicans. david plouffe, who's the president's political adviser, campaign manager in 2008, has tremendous influence in the obama white house. am i pointing the right direction? is the white house that way? is yes, okay. and he said, we've got to do something, we have to ask for more revenue. and one of clinton's -- one of obama's other advisers came this and said -- came in and said if you don't ask for more revenue, you will be part of the presidency, the weakest presidency in the history of mankind. i mean, imagine being in that situation, getting that advice from one of your aides. so the president picked up the phone and said we need more revenue. he insists it was an offer speaker boehner is equally insistent that it was a demand. i talked to him, talked to all the people. now, no one else was in the room, there's no secret tape recording of that phone conversation i know about. if anyone does, please, give me a
't need to answer that right now. you have a president who had every single democrat in the senate vote against his budget. to say romney has to be the bigger standard than obama. >> obama put up a plan. >> we have to end this here. you certainly make tonight more interesting. >> absolutely. the debate continues. nice to see both of you. >>> and we want to go now to an update i should say of that girl whose become a hero around the world. this 14-year-old girl shot by the pakistani taliban for speaking out against them. a source inside pakistan's intelligence community tells that two people including an important suspect are now in custody. the source would not say if either of them is the gunman. elizabeth palmer is reporting from islamabad. >> reporter: malala yousufzai is still unconscious, she's on a ventilator in a military hospital near islamabad. but a family friend scribes a brain scan is offering a ray of hope. a single bullet entered her head but only grazed her brain and lodged in her chest cavity. doctors did surgery to relieve the appreciate. the next 36 hours are critical
, including a senator who was one of those tutoring the president, even playing the role of barack obama for that debate. what we also noticed how few democratic operatives were in that crowd not wanting to fuel any questions about what was then considered the president's lackluster performance. in a long winded way, what happens, you learn a lot in this spin room, how it's spun and how many are doing the spinning after the fact. you also learn a lot that's unique to fox business and our coverage how the foreign markets and our own future markets are responding. they had been seizing this as a good night for the republicans. i'm not saying the entire financial community is a republican crowd but by in large they espouse those positions. they were jumping during and immediately after the debate. you will be able to gauge as always market reaction and how the markets are spinning it from way outside the spin room. tracy: it is going to be fun. ashley: it really is. neil, is it really in this case more that can be lost than gained? would a good performance by either candidate make much diff
's world wide security protection program pops below the 2.1 billion by the obama had been attrition the republicans cut the administration request for the security funding by 128,000,331,000,000 in fiscal 2012 and negotiations in the senate restored 88 million of the administration request so that is some background for you to name. remember our coverage at noon today when the hearing begins. tune into c-span2 watch of this morning. thanks for waiting and what are your thoughts on that? >> caller: good morning, c-span2 read i guess my main comment is that the whole purpose of affirmative action was to write a does diminish our policy over the course of history in the united states but it's not been applied appropriately. it would be more fair if it was a place on your income level so that the whole purpose of these people could have social mobility but it's not apply to people that come from low-income homes who don't necessarily have the same opportunity that many people have from middle class or upper class homes i think that creates bitterness from many people on that. last i fee

a natural shrinkage. also, 2008, huge election for president obama. how many points did he win ohio by? >> four. >> four. and so look to 2004. this election is going to compare to 2004. president george w. bush beat senator john kerry by 110,000 votes in iowa. he wins the presidency. this was going to be natural from day one. the obama supporters were excited about the early polls. they said that makes no sense whatsoever because this is going to be a tight election. >> lenny, quick question to you, four points is four points. no moral victory here. if he gets close, he still loses ohio, mitt romney, so doesn't the bounce need to be bigger than it is? >> no. we also thought president obama was going to knock romney out of the box and that didn't happen. the lead slunk in a way we didn't expect and the debate went a completely different direction. this bounces more than happens the campaign expected and president obama and his campaign have to fix this immediately. >> this is why we watch it. >> this is why we run. >> it's a wild ride. thank you for being on with us. take care. >>> 48 m
